ENTERTAINMENT AT VFINTHROP.
Ou laf-t Friday evening the college
wae veiled by ihe L'uiee Brthaa;>
Concert Company, which gave one of
it3 noted baited and opera concerts.
The entertainment iroveu to be one
of the most delightiul given here
during the past (wo or three years.
The many lavorable "press echoes"
bad 'ed us to expect much, and if any
thing realization in this instance exceeded
expectation Ibe company is
composed of artists whose talents are
widely recognized. It is under the
direction of HB Thearle, of Chicago,
13 M Ilanford being the business
manager. The demand for return engagements
w!>ich this company receives
daring its annual tour is sufficient
testimony of its popularity.
Those who make up the company
are as follows:
W Guillame JSanolet, pianist; 0!ga
Schnoll, violinist; vocalists?Forrest D
Carr, baritoue; Louis J Mintz, tenor;
t - OHA* T.anltft
Jessie DUiUiiCU iuumuc, auv,
M Bn hany, soprano. Mr Siuvlet is
an acknowledged musical genius, and
Ms piano pieces were leceived with
much applause, lie played with exquiri'e
expression and his mu*ic irust
have s p'talcd even to those who were j
leas-t appreciative of classical music.
Olga Schmoll masters the violin
wiih ea<c. srace and power. She is
paid to be cnly sixteen and plays remarkably
well for ber age.

and MinJz brough? cut in beautiful
